Romney v. Obama: The Debate That Wasn’t

What passed as a presidential debate, Wednesday evening, was nothing more than a series of carefully-rehearsed, often rambling, mini-speeches that were more focused on generalities than on specifics.

Notes and Asides

There are few people who we can kill on sight in history, and this was one of them. That the president felt the need to hide from the fact that he ordered just that is puzzling; after all, if polled, the only people who would have said “bring him here alive” would be the far left, who are going to vote for him anyway.

Bin Laden still had a heavy hand in al-Qaeda

Bin Laden still had a heavy hand in al-Qaeda

Osama Bin Laden played a hand in al-Qaeda right up until his death. Over the past few years, terrorism experts came to see bin Laden as not much more than Qaeda’s symbolic leader.
